.i.e. they have v heavy rain for the cape, but boston a bit of a dry area. but the damage already done. look at these snowfall totals. central new jersey over a foot of snow. everywhere here in the light pink shading is 3 to 6 inches of snow. and new york city coming in just over 4 inches which was the earliest 4 inch snowfall ever on record for the city. beating that old record by over a month -- or i should say about a month. heavy snow continued across connecticut and so we're continuing to watch that area. but the snow that's already on the ground was blowing around, as well. still 20 to 30-mile-an-hour wind gusts. these are the peak winds we saw near 70 miles an hour near nantucket. everyone else closer to 40s in the mile per hour range. but that's enough. for the advisories that are still out there, connecticut into rhode island, we're still watching winter weather advisories and winter storm warns. and that continues up the coast into new hampshire and maine where the snowfall totals quite honestly won't be as big. switching gears a little bit, i know there's a lot of natural gas and
, and one in pennsylvania. joined now by peter hamby live at the romney headquarters in boston, massachusetts. peter, these are sort of late additions to the schedule. . >> yeah, and travel is the best indicator of a campaign's thinking. we've known that pennsylvania sort of last-minute gamble/insurance policy for the romney campaign. 96% of the vote is on the table there today, because there isn't really early voting. but the ohio travel jumped out at me and paul ryan is also going to ohio today, john. this signals to me that they are nervous about ohio, as they have been. but they're just a little more nervous in these closing days. but, you know, romney himself, of course, is projecting confidence outwardly. check out this rally last night in new hampshire that pulled 12,000 people. this is what he said. >> we have known many long days and short nights, and now we're close. the door to a brighter future is there. it's open. it's waiting for us. i need your vote. i need your help. walk with me. walk together. tomorrow we begin a new tomorrow. >> there is, john, an air of anxi

is live in the boston with more. john? >> reporter: good afternoon. great job, by the way, last night, really terrific. megyn: back at you. >> reporter: i talked with a romney adviser just a few minutes ago who told me the campaign wasn't aware of any kind of a formal invitation from the president at this point to come down to the white house and talk about issues, but this adviser suggested that if an invitation like that did come, that governor romney would probably most certainly take the president up on it for the sake of trying to bring the nation together after such a divisive election. that was a big theme of his campaign in the closing days, reaching across the aisle to get things done, and it was the theme in his concession speech last night as he urged leaders who will carry the country forward from january on to work together to try to solve some of the big issues that are facing this country. the governor basically saying that's one of the reasons why he ran for president. here he is. >> i ran for office because i'm concerned about america. this election is over, but our p

predicting where sandy was going to go. >> think run up the atlantic coast and bring it to boston and new york and all the way down to d.c. and maybe even potential for snow to the west. other problems when this goes by, the winds come like this. what does that do? it grabs more cold air, more cold air that will bring low temperatures down into the 30s. philadelphia, seaside heights where half the houses are knocked down the first couple of rows from the ocean. below freezing, and no heat for people trying to recover. >> when do we think this is going to happen? >> it happens on wednesday afternoon. >> there could even be a piece -- a small piece coming out on monday, but the main storm looks like it approaches the northeast on wednesday. >> all right. for people who have a little bit of time to get ready for this, there is a warning that this is coming, so people have a couple of days to really hunker down and try to figure this out. thank you, chad. really appreciate it. you got one storm that is gone and another that might be coming to the east coast. still digging out. >> we just got

island, and for atlantic city, places like boston, generally speaking, we're starting out as rain, and maybe a rain/snow mix. and then we're looking at it changing over to all rain. well, the frontal system is making its way towards the eastern seaboard, computer models probably overdoing the snowfall just a little bit. i think if anything, a half inch or an inch. but we're not looking at big, sick amounts. however quite a different story back across texas into louisiana and arkansas, with a chance for some hail. strong winds. and possibility of some tornadoes going into the afternoon. this is going to be an afternoon event, and the rest is just slight across this region. in new york, those readings will be in the 40s today. but for new york city, on tuesday, only into the 30s. and then we see this slow upward tick as far as the temperatures go. so, john, it looks like it's going to be fairly messy for people who are going to try to still be recovering from superstorm sandy. >> starting when, karen, was that? >> this will be on tuesday. it will start tonight, and going into tuesda
